Kunena 5.2 Beta 1 Released (Yesterday)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the first public beta release of Kunena 5.2, a native Joomla extension for Joomla 3.9. This is a development release and should be only be used for testing; this version is not recommended for live websites at this stage.

The purpose of this release is to encourage testing by downloading, installing and identifying any problems or shortcomings that people may discover. K 5.2.0 B1 is stable and we are aware that people will discover defects. We encourage you to use the forum to report defects, as soon as they are discovered, so that the development team can work through the problems before the release of K 5.1 as a stable product. Reporting defects does not mean that the problems can or will be fixed. The Kunena team is looking forward to hearing your feedback on how well we have achieved our design goals.

Question Allow Duplicate Alias for categorys

3 years 6 months ago - 3 years 6 months ago #1 by shoulders
I have wrote some software for Joomla and a small CMS called QWcrm and I am just setting up the categories and sections in Kunena.

I am now coming across the error
Notice
Saving category 1 failed: Cannot save category: Alias 'general' has already been taken.

This is because Kunena will not allow you to use an alias twice. This might be a project killer because for each software I have written I want the following standard categories:

General
Installation
Upgrading
Language
Security

Feature Request

Can you add the ability to use an alias more than once

possible solution

- Add sections into the URL SEF
- do a check on the Alias for the level it is in the SEF for duplicates (ie. if it is a section check all other section SEFs for a collision, the is no need to check a sections SEF against categories, if using the option above)

Might be of use

Do you know what, I thought this might be the case. I hope they don't release Joomla 3.7 until the router is fixed.

Please notice that the Joomla PLT for now decided to not include the router changes into 3.7. The (real) reasons are unknown to me. Since I can't really accept this, I provided the new router as an installable plugin here: github.com/Hackwar/jlrouter/releases

I would be happy if you would contact the PLT and tell them, that you are expecting this to be part of 3.7.

I will give it a go on my test site this week, I wont be able to put in on my live site just yet. I am guessing you mean 810 contacting the Joomla PLT.

To be honest, this was the only feature I was waiting for in this new release. But will be useful for a lot of people.

No, I mean everyone should contact the PLT. How else should they know what you guys want? Tell them what you think of this new delay. They delayed it since Joomla 3.3.
